    We're going to end up thinking that its a couple of days a month that you're not in your week MB!

    Ohhh, but you know that we love you just as you are!:hug:



    Ok, back to thread: I have never in my life had a rite of passage, so I couldn't tell. They say they're organising something in a dark alley for having my 1000 posts.... I hope it's a party!

    Maybe I'm just proving the point that I can be equally argumentative when I'm not on.

    I do have a question though... None of those things are uniquely male, why limit it?

    Well, let's say that it is rare to celebrate first wanks or first shags in young girls. I do agree, however, that it can apply to both genders all the same.:smile:

    You don't know many young girls, do you?

    Sexual things are equally important to young women / girls - we've just been discouraged from talking about it. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen and it doesn't mean that close friends don't confide in each other and celebrate milestones like those.

    I know many young girls, I just don't happen to be one.:smile:

    I'm not saying it's not important or that it should be less important for girls. Nor did I said it doesn't happen. It would be stupid to suggest so.

    I just say it's quieter, so to speak, in comparision to male rites of passage that are more widely cheered and expected to.

    How about your first kiss and your first slap across the face?

    For me, both came from the same girl. Now I am gay because of the trauma the conflicting signals caused me.

    You don't have moving out of your parent's house, getting a job, graduating high school or college, owning your own car, having a child, joining the military, being in combat, killing someone, getting your first STD, getting your first tattoo/body piercing, getting drunk, or doing drugs.

    All on the same day? It must have been more eventful than Ferris Bueller's Day Off...

    Age to drink alcohol is interesting one. I suppose (sadly) in the UK, this is not really seen as an issue. THe rules are not as strictly enforced as I understand in USA. I certainly had my first alcoholic drink way before I turned 18 (the age at which you could buy for yourself) and even did so in pubs.

    I voted and all, but you missed "first trip to a hooker", "first time getting beat the fuck up" and "first time lowering your standards to get laid."

    None of these, except for marriage with a group of witnesses from the community, is a rite of passage.

    A rite of passage is always a collectivist act, never an individual act.
